The Almond Roca Cake – an epic caramel cake recipe inspired by the famous confectionary! This chocolate, almond and caramel cake will steal your heart (and your taste buds!)! I love the sweet and crunchy Almond Roca candy and wanted to create a cake that captured all the flavors and textures of this treat! This almond roca cake is made with almond caramel cake layers dotted with loads of crunchy almond pieces, frosted with my salted caramel frosting, filled with almond roca candy pieces and topped with chocolate ganache. This almond roca recipe is perfect for your next special occasion!

Every bite of this caramel cake is filled with exciting textures and flavors! I love the combination of caramel frosting, chocolate and almond roca pieces. The cake layers themselves are not too sweet, only sweetened with dulce de leche, making this cake well-balanced.
All About The Caramel!
This almond roca cake recipe wouldn’t be complete without a good dose of caramel! For this recipe, you’ll need to prepare a batch of my ‘Salted Caramel Frosting’ recipe, which you can find here; it’s great for any cake! https://tatyanaseverydayfood.com/recipe-items/salted-caramel-frosting/
- For the caramel cake recipe, I add a full can of dulce de leche for the ultimate caramel flavor. Can’t find dulce de leche in your grocery store? You can also use my home-made caramel sauce for this recipe! https://tatyanaseverydayfood.com/recipe-items/caramel-sauce/
Garnishing the Cake
I garnish this cake with chocolate ganache, crushed Almond Roca pieces and white chocolate lace. The white chocolate garnishes on this cake are so beautiful! Make sure to watch my video recipe to see how I made them! These garnishes can make any cake look extra fancy! For the chocolate ganache, I have a separate video recipe with in-depth recipe instructions you can see HERE.
